Shenley is a beautiful Grade II* listed cottage, peacefully situated at the end of a short terrace that was once the Manor House in Broadwell, one of the most picturesque villages in the Cotswolds. The village is centred around a large green, which Shenley overlooks, and contains many period properties and a welcoming local pub, as well as being ideally located for exploring the stunning surrounding countryside. The famous market town of Stow-on-the-Wold is just over a mile away, with its wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, and Moreton-in-Marsh is three miles away, providing a direct train line to London. Shenley is perfectly placed for visiting the many towns and villages of the North Cotswolds, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath.
This attractive, well-proportioned property has many character features, including stone mullion windows, a large stone fireplace with wood burning stove, exposed beams and many well-chosen antiques. Modern facilities including wireless internet access, a TV with DVD player, and a well-presented kitchen complement the historic character of the property.
Shenley sleeps six people, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There is a lawned area at the front of the property and a courtyard at the back, whilst a driveway to the side of the property provides parking space for two cars. Shenley is perfect for a family or a group of friends looking for a relaxing break in a historic property, in one of the prettiest villages in the Cotswolds.
Booking and payment
Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.
For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.
All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.
Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions).
The maximum occupancy of the property is six guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than six guests at the property.
Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by up to two additional infants.
Up to two medium sized dogs are accepted, at a cost of £20 per booking per dog.
For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.

Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old, Grade II listed property and has many character features, including steep and twisting stairs, low beams in the eaves rooms, multiple floors and steps from the front door into the garden, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the property in the event of an emergency.

No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
